Veterans Outreach and Support
FSW’s Veterans Outreach and Support Project was established in January 2012 to meet the needs of returning veterans and their families. Since then, we have expanded our services to veterans and families from all eras without restrictions to service dates, discharge or dependency status.
Family Services of Westchester understands the problems that arise during military service and community reintegration and offers individualized strategies to address the unique issues faced by the military community.
Two programs make up the veterans department at FSW: The case management program and the Vet2Vet program. Our highly trained staff is partially comprised of former active duty and veteran family members.
The Veterans Outreach Program
The Veterans Outreach Program has linked our Veterans to services that promote both independence and re-acclimation to their communities. We have assisted over 150 Veterans with advocacy services related to
housing, legal assistance, education and benefit claims. We have also assisted veterans on their paths to employment by providing them with opportunities for continued service, as well as peer-to-peer support.
